On Monday night (March 16) , NBC’s The Voice Blind Auditions concluded, with the coaches making the final selections for their Season 18 teams. However, with limited slots remaining on their teams, they were forced to be extremely selective on who earned a chair turn.

19-year-old music therapist, Kailey Abel offered a flawless rendition of Alphaville’s “Forever Young,” garnering a chair turn from coach Blake Shelton. Abel ultimately earned the final remaining spot on Team Blake.

“You three realize that this show is called ‘The Voice’ and y’all heard what she has,” Shelton quipped following her performance. “That sound coming out of her mouth is an incredible voice.”

“A lot of us have only one spot left but you have a very, very cool texture,” said Kelly Clarkson.

“You have got a great coach in Blake,” Nick Jonas said reluctantly.

Following praise from all of the coaches, Shelton continued to gush over his new team member.

“You have an incredible gift, I will say this right now. I would bet the farm on you winning this competition,” Shelton confessed. “You have that Bonnie Tyler, Kim Carnes sounding voice that people cannot get enough of because you can’t fake it and I’m so excited about it.”

The Voice Battle Rounds begin next week, with Bebe Rexha, Dua Lipa, Ella Mai and the Jonas Brothers joining as team advisers.

NBC’s The Voice airs every Monday night at 8:00 P.M. ET.
